If you expand the tile and tap "Library", you can swipe across to "Albums" and get an alphabetical list of all the albums. Select one, tap the first track and it will play the tracks in track number order....
This assumes your sound files are correctly tagged.

Indeed. An interface clearly designed by an ambidextrous 15 yr old tech with 20/20 vision, zero tremor, and an ability to swivel one eye to the centre display and the other to the road.

How true, I hate how that top menu, as with navigation, is smaller and grey text not big bold button!

I rarely use the menu... Investigate voice commands, they're brilliant! I make phone calls with "Call Joe Bloggs", I find my way home saying "Take me home", I adjust the Climate saying "Set temperature to xx degrees", and even turn seat heat and steering wheel heat of and off that way... You can also search for music using voice (I don't so can't advise)

I've succeeded with voice for heating, not so for music, it randomly offers something entirely different! Maybe doesn't like a welsh accent :-)

Climate, heated seat and “take me home” are OK but anything else and I might as well ask her to “Open the pod bay doors”

Someone on here a little while ago posted a comprehensive set of the voice commands, it's very useful.

To increase/decrease the heater temperature, press the Voice Command button and say "I'm cold" or "I'm hot" and the bossy woman will oblige.

Said harridan has difficulty when trying to understand my navigational requests, though. I might as well have the current wife sitting in the passenger seat barking "words of good advice" at me.........
